CODY LAMAR KITCHENS RACES TO PODIUM FINISH IN YAMAHA R6 CUP IN SPANISH C.I.V. SERIES OPENER AT JEREZ
Texan Cody Lamar Kitchens raced his Andifer Racing Team Yamaha R6 to a well-earned third place finish at Circuito de Jerez at Round One of the Yamaha R6 Cup on Sunday in the Rookies division.
Cody got up to speed quickly during practice, getting acquainted with the bike, the team, the Michelin spec tires and the track. Qualifying didn’t go as he had planned, and he ended up starting from the sixth row. A good start got him into a position to run with the front runners, and Cody made his way forward.
“I got a good start, there were a few crashes on the first couple of laps, and I ended up closing on the third place rider,” said Cody. “I got around him after a couple of laps and pulled away, then maintained the gap to the guys ahead of me.”
Cody, 16, moved to Fortuna, Spain in July of 2020 from Houston, Texas, but the Covid-19
pandemic caused the Spanish race series to be cancelled, also for the 2021 series. In the
interim, Cody has been training with the Pakosta37 Riders Factory, riding on both dirt and
pavement, and doing track days on his personal Yamaha R6.
Cody’s next event of the 2022 Yamaha R6 Cup series is at the Navarra Circuit in Northern
Spain on July 1-3, 2022.
For the 2022 season, Cody Kitchens is proud to be sponsored by Three Chihuahua Racing
